Ghost in the Shell(2017) is a live-action adaptation of the Anime franchise Ghost in the Shell. The movie was directed by Rupert Sanders and starred Scarlett Johansson (Her, Lucy).

Plot

In the near future, we live in a world where humans have become enhanced by cybernetics. Things like vision, strength and intellect can all be upgraded with the help of augmentative technology.

Transhumanist Elements

Cyborgization features heavily, much like in the original anime. There are lots cybernetic enhancements; After an explosion, Batou becomes the recipient of bionic eyes. Prosthetics also feature heavily too.

Brain-computer interfaces also get plenty of screen time, and the brain-to-brain communications as seen in other GitS iterations also make an appearance.

Future Tech Elements

Much like other GitS features, there is a heavy presence of both hypothetical and near-future technologies in the live action film. Some of which include; Holographic technology, and advanced weaponry.

Differences between Live Action & Anime

  • Unlike the Anime where the major is known only as Motoko Kusanagi, in the live action adaptation she is also revealed as Mira Killian.
